25 years set to expire. there's new technology complicating the debate on capitol hill, a group called wiki weapons developed a program that lets you develop guns with a 3d printer in your own home. these rb tested. the atf found the first one they printed exploded but the second gun fired eight rounds of live ammo. these printed guns are invisible to metal detectors and that's what makes them illegal. so the '88 undetectable firearms act forbids any firearm that doesn't set off an x-ray machine or metal detector. gun owners can insert a metal part into any plastic gun to make it legal. but the idea of 3d printing has touched off a new controversy over the old ban. the house could simply extend the old ban for another ten years but some gun control advocates say that doesn't go far enough anymore. chuck schumer calls the house bill "better than nothing but not good enough. we absolutely must close the loophole that allows anyone to legally make a gun that could be rendered invisible to law enforcement." joining us today from capitol hill, covering today's expected vote, a couple

or is this constant 24-7 campaign we are always in that is a by product of this media world with the technology moving and they are getting more power? >> a sign of the times. you look at the level of partisanship and the media that exists, this is again, i can't emphasize enough, we are living in unprecedented times. the productivity is really bad. the potential good news is they can pass a lot of this stuff next year. the congress doesn't end until 2014. we will see what they do next year. >> it's harder in an election year and with all the upgrades we had, it brought congress to a screeching halt. too many people had too many things for all sorts of stuff. fascinating. much more ahead here on "the daily rundown." we are on the scene as fast food workers protested in more than 100 cities demanding a wage hike. new do you means allege toronto mayor rob ford went to the buffalo bills mayor and may have tried to buy the video of himself smoking crack cocaine before it could become public. the latest leak from edward snowden said they are gathering billions of cell phone roars every day. that's coming u

, this is technology and we are still trying to figure out how this should work in the media news cycle. what do you say to that? >> this white house has new tools and they are able to spread that because of new technologies because of twitter and facebook and they can post the photographs on their own flicker site. they have the ability to spread them faster. to a certain extent, it's on independent news organizations to look at this stuff and to filter it. what's happening now is these photographs are landing on screens or editor's desks around the world unfiltered. it's up to the news organizations to attribute their source. >> we have a policy when we have used a photo, we say the white house we leased this photo. >> yes. >> to the average viewer, they are just seeing the foo and they are not necessarily hearing that caveat every time we put it out there. it is a version of propaganda. people hate that word, but that is what this can come taken too far. >> propaganda is a strong word, but the viewing public needs to be aware of that when they are seeing a white house photograph. it's a visual pr

billionaire who tries to do this comes from technology. >> from bloomberg some. >>some comes from silicon valley. does not come from bloomberg or oil. the old ways of money. comes from the new money. >> probably so, but i think the approach you out lined is easier and more practical approach. five or six or ailt people are running as independents and saying i'm not a democrat or a republican, i will be for the people. 100 years before ross perot with william jennings brian. the populous movement was all about let's have a federal income tax and regulate the banks and elect senator directly and not have them be appointed bite aristocrats. >> that has been my thesis of what the mid-terms will be about. that may end up status quo because of that. i wonder why there not third party candidates. >> it's a good question and neither party will win. it is which is the worst at making their case. >> who will commit suicide last? smart people to talk about that. the elusive doug. you know he is watching. >> i did a lot of work with him. he's out there. >> home office somewhere. he knows we have been
